ATLANTA (AP) Ryan Howard homered and drove in the go-ahead run in Philadelphia's five-run 13th inning, and the Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 6-1 on Monday night.

The Braves lost in 13 innings for the second time in three days, following an 11-6 loss to the Angels on Saturday night.

Ben Revere led off the 13th win a sharp single up the middle off David Hale (2-2) before stealing second base and moving to third on Jimmy Rollins' fly ball to right field. Following an intentional walk to Chase Utley, Howard hit a sharp grounder that took one hop past first baseman Freddie Freeman for an error as Revere scored from third.
